Education Reform in President Obama's State of the Union Address

Today, The Huffington Post published an article about what specific education issues President Obama might address in his State of the Union Address this evening. High on the list is equity in the education of all students.
Kati Haycock, author of The Huffington Post article, explained, “President Obama needs to clearly signal that schools will be held accountable for the performance of all of their students and for closing the longstanding gaps that threaten our future. We can't have educational reform without equity; we can't get the changes in achievement we need nationally without educating all of our children.”

With everything from the nation’s lowest performing schools to improving teacher quality forecasted for this evening, it will be interesting to see what he actually does address and what his approach will be.
